I am able to reproduce the issue on iOS with the repro project linked in comment 2.
I think this is likely a dupe of https://bugzilla.xamarin.com/show_bug.cgi?id=50362
It seems to be kind of universal that InputTransparent is not working as expected on Android.
If you create a new Forms PCL Xaml solution and replace the Label in the Xaml with:
> Date="2016-07-08" />
> Placeholder="Enter Date"
> InputTransparent="true" />
On iOS clicking on the entry pulls up the date picker, but on Android it does not, you start editing the Entry instead.
