There appears to be some products that have come out that allow you to develop for the Android in C# and the .NET Framework. I am comfortable with these and am considering using them for my dev instead of Java. What limitations do you think someone would run into if they use C# .NET instead of Java for Android?

I guess you're talking about the Mono project. I haven't personally used it but I have talked with people who have used and they have run into all sorts of problems (for example you can't use third party libraries with your application, they will have to be rewritten in C#). My short answer is "don't do it". You are better off using Java.

There is a lot to be said for protecting yourself and your accounts with 2 factor authentication.  I found to my own chagrin, that there is a big downside as well.
