“Bitmap too large to be uploaded into a texture”

All rendering is based on OpenGL, so no you can’t go over this limit (GL_MAX_TEXTURE_SIZE depends on the device, but the minimum is 2048×2048, so any image lower than 2048×2048 will fit).

With such big images, if you want to zoom in out, and in a mobile, you should setup a system similar to what you see in google maps for example. With the image split in several pieces, and several definitions.

Or you could scale down the image before displaying it (see user1352407’s answer on this question).

And also, be careful to which folder you put the image into, Android can automatically scale up images. Have a look at Pilot_51’s answer below on this question.
