In the android-sdk go to the "platform-tools" folder.
Then launch a terminal and type:

Code:
adb reboot-bootloader
-> Device is rebooting

type:
Code:
fastboot oem unlock
now press the + Volume button to select Unlock then - Volume Button to confirm.

restart:
Code:
fastboot reboot-bootloader
Your bootloader is now unlocked.

Flash custom recoveries, for one thing.

Also.. ROMs.

Well, in theory you could also geht root by flashing an prepared Update.zip when the bootloader is unlocked. Beside the ability to flashing anything ( Kernels, Roms etc)
