use the 'Views by device type' page...
a) create a new view for the new device type -- clone this from an existing view using Settings -> Manage Views -> Copy
b) set a specific view for the device type using Settings -> "Views by Device Type" to chnage the view that gets displayed for a particular sysObjectID.
Thanks for pointing me in the right direction. I've been able to create a new view and associate the particular resources to that view specific to my needs. Most appreciated.
