    Hey guys. I just noticed that when I go into the actual application menu, there are multiples of Camera, Market Place, and etc.But only some of them are duplicates. Any ideas?

    If you are talking about viewing the applications from Setting>Application Settings>Applications, then the reason is that these applications are broken into "parts" For Example, the one you mentioned... Camera. There is the Camera App that is in ROM (it shows as 0KB of storage) and there is the Camera "Settings" (which is the part that is stored in RAM or on your SD Card) which will have a size (in my case 4k). You can (not that you would want to, but you could) delete the parts that are in RAM (this is often helpful when an application needs to be reset), but you cannnot (because it is read-only) delete the parts that are ROM based.
