FWIW Zimbra does have keyboard shortcuts:

If by Android client you mean ActiveSync I find it to be a battery hog, at least on the iPhone.  It's so much so that I use imap + caldav with a 15 minute check interval.  Of course that does not give you immediate notification of new mail or straight https connectivity to the server.  Zimbra also has a decent mobile client included in the free version but of course that's less than ideal for daily use.
