Offline scalability: Will offline POS on tablet work with huge set of items?

What happens when a store (say electronics or hardware) has 100,000 different items each with its image and so. How will the offline POS scale?  In other words: Will it work?  Will it have to download the whole thing each time? 

@Ermin_Trevisan I cannot comment on your answer because I need "karma". Sorry, this is counter productive.

Anyway, the bottom line here is not clear. Will it work or won't it. If it won't work out of the box, how will the POS Cache help?

The discussion about local storage makes things even more unclear. I don't care how the data is stored. I only see that each time I run the POS it starts off by "downloading" for several long seconds. My question is: Wnhat will happen when I have 100,000 items and more with images in my store. Will that load onto my 16GB cheap tablet?
