That is a bit of a myth, it is definitely not true now days and I doubt
it was ever outside of very early feature phones.
I display the attribution text from
(~38 characters) plus a logo plus zoom buttons at the bottom of the
screen on essentially any Android phone I've ever tested (which for
example includes a 2010 HTC Desire HD) and it fits .
Does having to display the attribution constrain the layout, sure, but
that isn't different than for example if you would be using google, so
not a hardship that only we are inflicting (and naturally essentially
every imagery layer has attribution requirements that are similar).
