This may be a duplicate of bug 27412 note comment 7 in which case is there a workaround or when will it be fixed? Really need it to work for our company to license Xamarin (our customers will find this super annoying).

Please see attached sample project: MyPage.xaml.cs line 28 we call Focus() and b/c the return value is true we see the system does believe it has the focus but the problem is the keyboard doesn't show until the operator taps the entry.

To be clear when I say duplicate I mean bug 27412 seems to have to be re-opened as it has status of verified fix but I still see this problem.
