While I don't see someone engaged with their device as being qualitatively different than someone reading a book, but, I think we are talking here about people engaged with devices in social situations, and while walking and driving ... situations where reading a book would be reacted to as inappropriate.
«... thank the gods that they have made you superior to those events which they have not placed within your own control, rendered you accountable for that only which is within you own control For what, then, have they made you responsible? For that which is alone in your own power—a right use of things as they appear.» Discourses of Epictetus Book I:12
