You downloaded a 300 MB highly compressed installer that unzips during installation and takes up 600 MB of hard drive space. That's like basic computer 101.
I have never seen a single PC program that has a 300 MB installer file that unzips to the same 300 MB after installation --- and that's what your conspiracy theory is (because you are saying that RIM forgot to delete the original installer file).

Well, I tested this - confirmed it and gave an explanation. Am I putting a conspiracy theory forward?
Bottom line is that Dead Space takes around twice as much space as it should. I didn't say 'exactly' as there's no easy way to test this.
And since when have compressed files been anything other than around the same when using audio files and similar compressed media formats, which I can almost guarantee it is nearly choc-full of.
And there's no need to slap down the original poster because he might not be privvy the the inner workings of the PlayBook.

I don't see anyone trying to slap the OP down. For one, I was just trying to get a clarification of his posted message. I know there is language barrier here, and if we don't ask, we don't know.

but when I go to settings> about, he claims that I have 92 APPLICATIONS! How is this possible
...such as your Messaging application, it's counted as an application, but not one you've downloaded and installed from AppWorld.
