An equivalent headline would have been "Tablets Surpass Netbooks in Popularity". The data is really telling us that there is no one-size-fits-all technology.

Yes to all points, but the title emphasis seems quite right to me; it is not news that Tablets are selling well but it is news that netbooks are not on their way out.
