Subject Re: apache-cordova - FileReader#readAsTextFile throws OOM when reading local file
Date Thu, 06 Sep 2012 14:55:49 GMT
It's just too much memory for the HTC Desire to handle. Each application
has a piece of the system memory on the HTC Desire the RAM is 384 MB while
on the Samsung Galaxy S2 has 1 GB or RAM. I'm making the assumption that
the available memory for each application is much smaller on the HTC device
as it has one third the memory of the Samsung and that's probably why you
are getting the OOM exception.
