I'd say that's up to whatever gives you the osm data. You probably don't 
want to have an entire country in a single file, just ask the osm servers 
for what you need not everything you can get.

Would it be possible to use some kind of file splitter to split the database into 5mb chunks? that way I could have all of Pennsylvania inside of my phone, but split into say perhaps 10 different files or so?
