I don't think anyone has rooted one yet. (but as things are moving quickly I could easily be wrong on that)
Does the sales blurb claim one of the usb ports is OTG? if so then a usb to usb cable should work with the right software but there is more info on the thread given.
The only recognised way to 'backup' the existing firmware is to ask the supplier for a link to the firmware and download it! (It may be possible to dump the firmware from the device but I have never seen any instructions, it may require JTAG hardware)
rooting a device normally just allows access to all of the device, giving you the opportunity to really screw it up! The procedure of rooting can be dangerous too if you use the wrong procedure and/or files.
