Why not say something like this?
"I need to tell you something, because you have the right to know. When you carry on conversations with other people when you are at my house, it hurts my feelings."

Tell him to put it away.  We have this going in another thread also, and I say it is extremely rude to ignore others you are interacting with by playing with your electronics.  When he whips it out the next time, say "Friend, we would like to keep our evenings electronic free.  If there is a pressing matter you need to attend to, we will just see you next time."
