Is it the tablet itself generally or the OS (in this case Android 4.1 Jelly Bean) that determines whether a tablet can support a 64GB SD card or not?

I have an Acer A110 tablet with Jelly Bean 4.1 but the manufacturer specs say it only supports up to 32GB. I don't want to try (for I'd have to buy a card first) without knowing for sure if it will work or not? But is this more a software limitation or a hardware limitation? I got the tablet only a year ago, when 64GB cards were out, but still somewhat newer.

It could be both. Think of 48 bit addressing and large hard drives a few years ago. Last I knew, Jellybean supported cards that size though, however the tablet may need to format it to a file system it can use

I'm thinking the disclaimer was predented as a result of them only able to test 32 gig cards.
