Can we separate the front page to Ipad vs Iphone/Ipod

I love reading the front pages on game updates, reviews, and previews but now this Ipad fever (which I am not biting into until later iterations and lower prices) I can't seem to find what is Iphone stuff and I fear it is going to get more cluttered with time.

Is there a way to separate things a bit for convenience?

Yeah, I think the "HOME" category should be for only iPhone and iPod Touch articles and they should add another category (along the top of the page) for iPad articles.
I'm sure they'll do something about it.

You can click on the tags used for the articles which separate them by ipad and iphone.

Look: http://toucharcade.com/category/iphone-games/

That will only give you iPhone games now, and nothing iPad will show up in there (unless maybe of course it's an iphone AND ipad game in one)

How do you do this?
Also, if you scroll down the home page and look on the right you will see links such as:


iPad (5)
iPad Games (34)
iPhone 3G S (11)
iPhone games (1985)
iPod games (8)
iPod touch games (1962)
News (369)

At the top of every article there are links:



Click on those and everything will separate.

We went through the same thing when the 3GS launched. 3GS specific games never took over TouchArcade, I'm not sure why there is any reason to think the iPad would work out any different.

Yes I see, that makes sense...

except that I had to scroll all the way down the page until I found an Iphone related article (Sims).

But that helps either way, thanks.

All of the iPad posts were actually kinda cool. I do not think they should be seperated unless the iPad becomes the more dominant gaming platform, or vice versa.

I have the same issue, except I check site news mainly through a feed reader.

That was just another iPhone though; not very different than the other two generations (and the iPod Touch). This is an entirely new mobile device
