Of course there are still K1s and K2s out there, but to say that they comprise the "vast majority" of Kindles in use is unlikely to be true, to my mind.
Every single UK client I have has a K2 (and we're fairly well-established there, I'm not talking 1-2 clients). Not a Sony, or other reader. Also about....80% of my "European" clients (continental). I am consistently and constantly surprised at the dominance of the Amazon device in Europe, at least, amongst my clientele.

I truly think that some of us, who read ePUBs predominantly, underestimate the true market reach of the Kindle devices, particularly the nice, long-battery-life, e-inks.
