As an Android user and that technology have changed will this really be something profitable for you? I originally used Outlook on Android and currently am using the Android with ActiveSync right now. I know I will be switching back to Outlook with MAPI support. Not to put a damper but you also have to think about what you are going up against and if the time is right. Being that Outlook and the Android mail/calendar apps are stable and good I wouldn't think so.

With that said I know a good app would handle mail, contacts and calendaring perfectly using IMAP, ActiveSync, and of course MAPI. I left off POP3 but you probably want that even though I don't see it as something great from a technological standpoint.

I don't believe an application for Android would be the best focus in my own opinion. We have invested a significant amount of time and resources in improving the web interface and ensuring it is mobile compatible. Because of this, the webmail interface works sufficiently on most mobile devices and includes all of the expected functionality when using an email client like Outlook or Thunderbird. 

With that being said; the framework you choose to deploy will depend on your requirements for your application. I can confirm that SmarterMail is an entirely .NET based application and will require a Windows based server to operate.
