    Hmm,

    I have a 64Gb Playbook, and I was just idley looking at the 'Settings'. On the 'About' page, under 'Hardware', it says: Total Storage: 59.4GB...

    So where is my missing 4.6Gb? I paid for it, and I want it!! If I contact RIM (sorry, Blackberry) will they send it to me do you think??

    64gb minus the gigabytes needed for the operating system installed. All is well with your PlayBook.

    They cannot send you 4.6GB of storage, this is normal, as EricB said, the missing GB is for your operating system. On tablets, phones, etc...there is always missing GB, MB, etc so you always start out with less out of the box.

    Ahh, Ok, I assumed that 'Total Storage' was the amount of available memory on the device before ANYTHING was installed. If it takes into account the memory used up by System/OS then that makes sense.

    I know that... I was only joking.
    As per my previous reply to Eric, I didn't realise that the 'Total Memory' was already taking into account the space used up by the OS. Thinking about it though that makes sense as it is the Total Memory - available to me.
