Through the desktop only.
My RIM tech guy told me to imagine 'even 25% of the 2.5 million users trying to upgrade wirelessly at once' every time RIM released an OS update.
The current wireless networks would probably not be able to handle it, or at best it might only slow down everyone elses services. Not a good thing for RIM or the carriers.
Also to do an upgrade on the device remotely you need a place to store your backups and also two OS's while the upgrade happens (i.e. somewhere for the current OS and somewhere for the 'new' updated OS). That means lots of filespace that probably doesn't exist on most people's BlackBerry's.
