Google has released the official Google Docs for Android app in Android Market. This native Docs app gives quick access to all your documents on the go. The app however does not replace office suites from your Android device, as it requires internet connection to work. So, you will need the third party office suites for offline editing/creating.
But, as the app has been launched, we would expect Google to soon add the offline working functionality in it. The Docs app also allows you to upload content from your phone and open documents directly from Gmail.
