How to Restore iPad from iPhone Backup

Can I restore a New iPad from an iPhone backup?

I bought a new iPad and want to restore my iPhone backup to it, including photos, contacts, videos and notes. How can I get it? Please help, thanks!

iTunes is a good helper to manage your iPhone contents. It generates backup every time when you sync your iPhone. Thus, it's very easy for you to restore your previous contents. However, the bad point is that iTunes backup only allows you to restore the whole content, and the existing content on your iDevice will be erase after restore. If you want to selectively restore iPhone backup to your iPad, is there any way?
