Bought it for my son in 2012, now he is 8 year old. And now my second son uses it. Good toy/tablet for children (2yr to 5yr) with parent supervision.
You could.......in fact over at XDA, they have continually built ROMS and have a forum for the Samsung 10.1 (P7510, P7500...and other versions).
1. First root
2. Then sideload a recovery via ADB connection via a computer - either TWRP (which is my favorite) or CWM. (the advantages using TWRP is everything is touchscreen....CWM is just too awkward)
3. Download a ROM (which will be a zip file) - you can find a decent one for the 10.1 over at XDA - https://forum.xda-developers.com/galaxy-tab-10-1/development
4. Download GAPPs (which is the equivalent of Google Play Services/Play Store) - Developers usually list the Gapps version that will work for the ROM in the forums
5. Reboot into Recovery (using Power button and Vol down)
6. Wipe Cache, Dalvik Cache, System and Data....
7. Install the ROM and GAPPs
Doing this will breathe life into an old device (one which I got with Honeycomb 3.0!)
*The latest ROMS, Lollipop & Marshmallow I downloaded is giving me problems with Google Play Services.....and I installed Gapps (pico)...so not sure whats going on

This P7510 version of the Galaxy Tab 10.1 is only a WiFi device. It does NOT have a cellular phone built in, so you can't make phone calls unless you have a WiFi connection and have installed something like Skype.
Android is not the same as BlackBerry OS ... so no, of course it doesn't have BBM.
It's now an OLD tablet, and the last version of Android available for it from Samsung was IceCreamSandwich, which means a lot of the newer apps will either not run or will be restricted in functionality. Similarly it doesn't have a lot of memory so many apps will suddenly just die because they run out. It's very frustrating to browse the web and have the browser just disappear.
There are newer Galaxy tablets. which may fit modern needs much better.
Please can this phone use the BBM application? And how can I upgrade it to Android version 4.0 at least pls... Fast reply

DANNY 2014, 09 Aug 2015I have a 10.1 got a virus had to reset it but now i can't download any apps or games. please h... moreHad bat.replaced. now wont accept my usual passwrd. How do I reset without losing contacts & photo's Thanx E D
If you find that the battery is not charging, cannot hold a charge or drains very quickly the battery would need to be replaced. It is under the screen and takes a third of the space of the tablet components. It's a fairly simple process and can be done in about 20minutes.There are about a dozen YouTube videos on describing the steps. Simply search 'Replacing P7510 tablet battery'
Anonymous, 19 Jun 2016what can cause it to not turn on? i have one and i have trying to turn it on for the last hour... moreTry leaving it plugged in to charging and just set it aside. Try again the next day or you may try holding the button down for a good count of 20-25 counts, sometimes this works for me. My hubby will mess with it and mess with it, cussing and fumming for a good 30 minutes and I just ask for it, then plug it in and hold the button down and it works every time for me. Then I just graciously smile at my hubby and give it back to him without saying another word.
Good luck and hopes this works for you.
