As reported in Google blog ( gzip compression is requested by default and handled automatically:

In Gingerbread, we added transparent response compression. HttpURLConnection will automatically add this header to outgoing requests, and handle the corresponding response:

Accept-Encoding: gzip

Take advantage of this by configuring your Web server to compress responses for clients that can support it. If response compression is problematic, the class documentation shows how to disable it.

but i've seen some feedbacks that it's not done automatically for http:// requests. To be checked.
