1024x50 banners on small tablets, not allowed?

From https://developer.amazon.com/appsandservices/apis/earn/mobile-ads/docs/understanding-api : "On tablet-sized devices, your AdLayout must be at least 533dp wide and 79dp high, or at least 1024dp wide and 50dp high." Does this really mean we can't use 1024x50 banner ads on a 7-inch Kindle Fire, or any other tablet that is *almost* 1024dp wide? What about 1024x50 ads on an iPad mini? It doesn't have a concept if dp, but I'm quite certain it would be a bit less than 1024 wide if it were android.

Hello Amazon Customer, The instructions you are referring to are specifically for Auto Ad Size, which is a setting that will request ads with sizes automatically selected based upon the sizes of both the screen and the ad's container. If you specifically want a 1024x50 ad then you can set this size manually by following these guidelines: https://developer.amazon.com/public/apis/earn/mobile-ads/android/docs/concepts#Manual%20Ad%20Size Note that Auto Ad Size will return 1024x50 ads on Kindle Fire devices that are rotated to landscape if the AdLayout's width is set to the screen's width and the height is set to WRAP_CONTENT. Also note that Auto Ad Size is not currently available on iOS. Hopefully that helps. Matt
