Just the opposite.
You should generally never install apps from Titanium Backup, only data. That's for different devices. One the same device, you can do a APP+DATA restore. I've never had an issue with doing a Data only restore. But it's EXTREMELY important to not restore any system data. Only restore data for the apps that you need.
So if you want you Angry Birds scores, then you'd have to backup on the phone, and then restore DATA ONLY to the tablet. The one fly in the ointment is Titanium Backup only works on Rooted devices. So you'd have to root both devices.
There are other programs. Mybackup Pro and AstroFile manager will make backups of your apps, unrooted. But I don't think any will include data w/o root.
IMHO, this is a big issue with Android in general. You should be able to backup data, even to Google's servers. But right now, I don't there is a way to do it unrooted, short of using the SDK.
