On both Wheezy and unstable there are 4.8.4 packages. Wheezy will ship with
it , and due to Debian freeze policy, we won't see 4.9 in unstable.
It may end up in semi-official repository  sometime during a freeze, but it
has never been confirmed (I wouldn't count on it). It has been confirmed that
KDEPIM from 4.8.4 will be packaged  - look at it in this external
repository or in experimental.
If you need to use KDE 4.9, you may:
- compile it yourself. Perhaps upgrade to Wheezy before, since it has newer Qt
and Qt development packages available.
- use another distribution. Kubuntu is Ubuntu-based (which, in turn, is
Debian-based), so it has administrative tools you should be familiar with.
There are also openSUSE, Arch, Gentoo and many others that has KDE 4.9
