Is ARM big-endian? If so, any Windows 8 ARM tablet (i.e. Surface RT)
or Windows Phone should do. Heck, even the emulator might do. It
shouldn't be too hard to whip up an app that prints those two values,
and I think Alex has a Windows Phone if he'd be willing to test it.

If ARM is little-endian (or Windows/ARM runs in little-endian mode)
then I don't think it matters; we'd have to try Mono on a PowerPC or
something like that.
