Yes, I believe R 3 will enter testing at some point and you will get it this 

I am currently preparing a wheezy repository on CRAN with R 3.0, so you could 
also use that once it is there. However, at the moment there are r-cran-* 
packages (e.g. r-cran-abind) and other things (e.g. python-rpy2) in jessie 
(testing) that are not compatible with R 3.0, as the versions rebuilt using R 
3.0 have not propagated to testing yet.

Kind regards,
