For R to be ported to the IPhone or iPad, there would needed to be
approval by Apple which has rather emphatically stated that it does
not want languages or alternate development systems ported. I believe
that terminal emulators already exist if you wanted to configure your
computer as a server. So depending on the precise meaning of the
phrase "app for R" the answer could be yes or no. The modifier "3G"
would appear to be meaningless in this discussion.
