I was just about to report this. I've also noticed this when using the new DataTemplateSelector. This pretty much makes Windows RT unusable right now for us. Can I request a bump in priority when this gets reviewed?

Should be fixed in 2.1.0-pre4

I have checked this issue with Xamarin.Forms 2.1.0-pre4 and now its working fine. Screencast: http://www.screencast.com/t/2Qqfuka4BZ

Hence closing this issue.
