    From your description, I think the size of your app based on the large data. It will be smaller if the large data comes from web service via internet. So if possible, build a WCF service or other service to server the large data.

    As I know, we can use GeneratorIncrementalLoadingClass to implement partial read. You don’t need to bind all data to control. When you drag close to the bottom of the control, it will load the next data for you. You can download the code sample from http://code.msdn.microsoft.com/windowsapps/Data-Binding-7b1d67b5. See IncrementalLoading feature in project.
