If I understood you correctly, you are most probably building a tablet interface. You may apply independent scrolling to different elements using the mobile scroller widget.
For our next release, we are going to provide some tablet specific widgets (like splitview), which (I hope) will support similar cases out of the box.
All the best,
the Telerik team
