the underlying reason for this is the delayed click event on touch devices, which is present both in iOS and Android. The android implementation is buggier, though. My guess is that the underlying image has the callback bound on the click event, while all Kendo UI Mobile widgets use the touchend event. If this is so, you can try moving the callback to the touchend event, and see if the problem persists.
