Rooting would probably let you take advantage of it a little sooner since there are often custom ROMs made by the user community. You do not have to be rooted to get official updates though. In fact, you typically lose root access when doing an official upgrade. The next big thing is going to be Ice Cream Sandwich and it should be out in the next few months.
