    Hey all. First if this is in the wrong section please move and sorry.

    Now to my question. I got a 7" Jazz mini tablet from one of those black Friday sales. I am basically looking to set it up like my ipads. I just want to use it for games and to read comic books. On the ipad I just disable safari and have a password for each app install. On the android 4.03 there doesn't seem to be any way to remove and or block web browsing.

    Now before anyone just goes into blasting this is what I want to use it for. Just games and books. No internet browsing, youtubing, facebooking or otherwise. I know I can go get an Ipad but this is $70 where as those start at $330.

    On the restricted ipad this is all fairly simple. On the much more open androids I would think this would be much easier to accomplish. Perhaps there is system settings I am just not understanding yet. Any wisdom on how to set one up for games and comics only it would be much appreciated. Thanks.

    I move this thread into the General Tablet talk forum.

    Anyhow, I believe if you go into the apps you can disable them, but you might need to root your device to do this.

    However, if you download a launcher like Nova Launcher, it allows you to hide certain apps so they don't even appear on your device. So you can hide the browser.
