Microsoft just may have something here...
Microsoft recently released Outlook for iOS. Technically, it's a rebranding of acquisition Acompli, but it's still awesome. I've only been playing with it for a day, but it's already replaced both Apple's Mail app and the Calendar app on my iPhone and iPad.
