Amazon Fire Max 11 is the company’s biggest tablet yet, aims at the iPad 2022

Amazon’s Fire tablets are known for being affordable and usually quite small, but the company’s latest slate breaks at least one of those trends, as the Amazon Fire Max 11 has just been announced, and it has an 11-inch 1200 x 2000 screen.

Previously, the biggest Amazon tablet was the 10.1-inch Amazon Fire HD 10, but an extra inch of screen space isn’t all you get here.

For one thing, the Amazon Fire Max 11 has an 8MP front-facing camera that’s ideally positioned for landscape video calls. That means the lens is halfway down one of the long sides of the slate, which makes a lot more sense for a tablet, as they’re almost always used in landscape orientation for video chats. This isn’t the first Fire with that design, but it’s something a lot of tablets don’t have.

That positioning and the 11-inch size actually makes this one of the closest rivals to the iPad 10.9 (2022), as it has an almost identical screen size and is also the first iPad to have a landscape selfie camera, as well as being one of the cheapest iPads – though it’s still more expensive than Amazon’s slate by quite a way.
