Transition applied to masked images in Android breaks them, thus the square you are seeing. This is one of the reasons we deprecated them in the next release and introduced font icons. Please upgrade to the latest release (Q3 2012 SP) and this particular issue will be fixed. Make sure you also read about the breaking changes in Q3 and later
in our documentation.
All the best,
the Telerik team
