Original T-Mobile myTouch 3G phones to get Froyo upgrade this week
Starting tomorrow through October 25th, T-Mobile plans on rolling out Android 2.2 via an OTA upgrade to owners of the original T-Mobile myTouch 3G. If you don't get the upgrade today, no need to panic as the carrier is staggering the release to avoid taxing the system too heavily.

If you own the T-Mobile myTouch Fender Limited Edition, don't fret (pun intended). After the original myTouch 3G is all done being served Froyo, the Guitar-centric device and the myTouch 3G Slide will be next on the list to get upgraded.

Those receiving the Android 2.2 upgrade on their T-Mobile myTouch 3G will also get a "new home screen experience, new Exchange e-mail integration and the addition of Faves Gallery". The update will come in two parts sent OTA and you cannot opt out of it. Of course, with support for Adobe Flash among other new features, why would anyone in their right mind want to?

Are OTA updates able to be downloaded through wifi?...i ask because i have a Slide and i am interested in seeing how sense will run on the original mytouch with such small amount of RAM and a little below average processor power, but don't want to take the SIM out of my phone...I appreciate any answers that i get.
