I was looking through the google analytics for my site and noticed a rather odd resolution. Any idea what sort of device might use such a resolution?

Can you get the browser type? That would help narrow it down a lot. I came across this before in log files and the reported software was Netscape 5.0 on Windows 3.1.

I don't think this has ever been a standard resolution on Windows so it may have been running in a virtual environment of some sort.

Netbook comes to mind. Also, you can set your card/monitor to odd sizes sometimes. And as someone else said, it could also be a virtual environment. It is also possible that the resolution was detected incorrectly.

Note that available resolutions is up to the video card drivers, and NOT Windows.

Internet kiosks in shopping malls and airports also come to mind as devices with odd screen resolutions.
