stored when the connection is down, how can you store a really big database on a smart phone?

With a locally installed CouchDB, the data is stored on the phone.

I'm pretty sure my phone has 16 GB of storage in it, so that should be enough for a few contacts
databases, my bookmarks, and a todo-list or three.

Even all the databases I've accumulated on my laptop in the last years add up only to 3.2
