Test case

On http://developer.xamarin.com/api/member/Xamarin.Forms.NavigationPage.OnBackButtonPressed(), perhaps we can expand:

"Event that is raised when the back button is pressed"

To something like:

"Event that is raised when the hardware back button is pressed. This event is only applicable to Android and Windows Phone."

Well it would apply to iOS as well if it had a back button :P

I will make sure the docs get updated.

Should be live by the end of the week.
