I blogged previously about the ADO.NET Entity Framework Overview whitepaper.  Now you can download a CTP to play with.  Note that these features will NOT be in ADO.NET 3.0.  This is in some future version.  This is a very early CTP and is extremely limited.

The “ADO.NET vNext Entity Data Model Designer Prototype CTP” enables developers to design their data access stack using a designer in Visual Studio.
This is an unsupported tool that showcases upcoming ideas for ADO.NET vNext tooling and Visual Studio integration. It also illustrates how ADO.NET vNext developers might use Visual Studio to design their data access layer
The designer in this CTP has limited functionality and only lets you design the “Conceptual” layer. There is no support for visually editing mappings (MSL file) or storage (SSDL file) in the designer.
