  • Today, Amazon launched the new Amazon Fire Max 11.
  • The 11-inch tablet is the biggest and most powerful Fire tablet ever.
  • You can grab one as a pre-order today for $229, with shipping beginning in June.

Traditionally, Amazon’s line of Fire tablets have been pretty weak. The specs are almost always years behind the top-of-the-line Android tablets, and the lack of access to the Google Play Store is a big sacrifice.

However, today, the company is launching the Amazon Fire Max 11. While the Play Store is still missing, the specs are better than they’ve ever been. This might be a decent, cheap-ish tablet for the shopper who just wants something to watch shows, browse the web, and maybe play the occasional game.
