Tips If something is (apparently) already on my phone, do I need to download it from the Market?

    I've noticed that certain apps, like Gmail and Maps, will show "Installed" when I view them in the Market, even though I didn't manually install them from the Market (they were pre-installed, of course).

    However, other apps, like Voice Search, appear to also be pre-installed on my phone yet appear in the Market without the "Installed" indicator (instead, it shows the option to install it). Also, I assume I already have Flash, so what is the Flash Player 10.1 app in the Market? Are these things I still need to download, or do I already have them?

    Thanks.
