Vodafone chief executive Vittorio Colao said he was "very interested" in the iPad, which will be available in the UK in late March for the Wi-Fi model, and April for the Wi-Fi and 3G option.
"I have not, personally, touched one but I really look forward to it. I believe it is going to be another important piece of the - mobile - data experience. I think anything that improves the customer experience with mobile data is welcome and as such I would be very interested in having it," Colao said.
The company have likely set a good precedent to offer the iPad in the UK. Vodafone started selling the iPhone last month, with over 100,000 sales notched up in just over a week.
Last week, Vodafone reported that revenue from data services exceeded £1bn for the first time during the last three months of 2010, but that only partially helped offset lower voice revenue.
Vodafone reported revenue of £11.5bn, a year-on-year increase of 10.3 per cent, for its fiscal third quarter, which ended 30 December.
However, organic growth - which excludes favourable exchange rates, for example - was down 2 percent, according to Vodafone. The telecoms company does not report profit on a quarterly basis.
Apple has yet to announce partners for the iPad in the UK and notes in the small print: "International carrier availability to be announced. 3G data plan may be sold separately."
