Hey rootberg, not sure if you figured this out yet. But i was wrestling with this issue as well. The whole point is to use the MVC wrappers to make your life easier right?
I referred to this post: http://www.telerik.com/forums/switch-only-rendering-checkbox
And it helped!
The trick is to instantiate the MobileSwitch inside the content section of a MobileView, and then initialize the MobileView via MobileApplication referencing the div.
The only other thing that i had to do was make sure the correct kendo.[theme].mobile.min.css stylesheet was included in the _layout.cshtml, since these are not included in the core kendo css files. I am including it dynamically based on a dropdownlist, so i dont explicitly set the link property. I am doing that in some js code.
It seems like a lot of work compared to the regular MVC wrappers, but technically its a Hybrid UI control so the implementation is different. Wish it was easier, but at least this works!
Let me know if works out for you.
