Yes it does, the Premium edition of Docs2Go does. A very nice one.

Also, BeamBerry or BeamReader. All good.

There is not a free third party PDF viewer.

It is very strange that you can view PDF's (without any 3rd party tool) attached with a mail but cannot view the same attachment if it is saved to a drive. Would anyone know the logic behind it?

in the meantime you can still download the pdf file from your browser and e-mail it to yourself. it's really only like two extra steps if you don't wanna pay the money. the zoom is not too good thou

You also have Repligo, which is pretty the PDF To Go portion in Doc To Go premium.

RepliGo Reader is also very good, and I believe it is the engine behind PDF to Go.

When a PDF file is attached to an email, the attachment resides on RIM's servers until you open it. When you open it, RIM's servers actually process the file and send a JPG image of each page to your device. Without third party software or the aid of RIM's servers, your device has no ability to process a PDF file.

This is sound logical explanation. Anyways, I do have PDF To Go installed on my Berry.
