    Android 2.2 w/Flash (auto update?)

    When Android 2.2 is released with Flash Player built in (in June 2010), will we get it on our phones as an automatic update? How big is an entire Android OS release? I imagine it can't be all that big if it's fitting on a phone.

    o- Samsung Galaxy Tab running stock Froyo (update: running Gingerbread and virtually useless)

    If your phone is not rooted, then it will be an OTA update. OTA means over the air, so you'll get a notification that an update is available.
    This is how the last update was delivered.

    As has every released update of Android I've had over the years. The release can be either larger or smaller than exisitng, depending on how they have optimised code or added/removed features, but in general it's slightly larger.

    From my friends working on Froyo at Qualcom, it should be a significant OS upgrade expected approx May 19 to be rolled out by region over several days.

    Forgive my ignorance, but since this is rumored to be a "large" update, is there a rule of thumb for how much free space we should be sure to have on the phone before we update?

    That is not how mine came. I was working late at night at JFK airport and I looked at my phone to see what time it was. It was loading the OTA all by itself. It never notified me, just did it.
