RADIUS can only act on RADIUS attributes. There's no RADIUS attribute 
that says:

  Device-Type = "Bosses iPad"

Most NASes send username and network address of the client (MAC or IP) 
and that's about it for optional (non-authentication) stuff.

In other words, RADIUS can't differentiate devices - *you* have to do 
that, by supplying data and policy.
