So, I have a curve 8900 with Docs to Go.... why cant I open a PDF as an email attachment?

When I try to it just says "This attachment type cannot be viewed on your device "

Doc To Go that comes with BB is Standard Edition and you will need Premium Edition to read PDF files.

here is the comparison of Standard and Premium Edition:

You should still be able to view pdf documents (relatively small ones) on your BB using the BlackBerry Attachment Service.

Its a clunky workaround, but on my Pearl 8100 I'd download the PDF and then email it to myself and open it in Gmail Mobile.

I wish they would just support pdf's out of the box

I will say that it's a little bit pricey but the PDF To Go included with Docs To Go Premium is quite nice. Works very well.
