The Kyocera 6035 was one of the first smartphones to appear in the American market, released in January 2001, one of the first devices to combine a PDA with a mobile phone. Its predecessor was the Qualcomm pdQ (800 and 1900) released in 1999, built by Qualcomm's handset division (Qualcomm Personal Electronics), which Kyocera acquired in 2000.
The phone appears to have a dual-software nature, with the cellphone firmware operating independently (though available through an interface) from the Palm OS system. Like most modern smartphones, the phone operations can be off while the Palm operates, and vice versa. The systems are sufficiently integrated to pass important messages and commands to each other, though the phone's operating parameters (settings, phone book, speed and voice dial, call history etc.) are configured via the Palm OS system.
The phone has physical buttons for cellphone use, arranged on a flip which covers the Palm buttons, Graffiti area, and part of the screen. The upper part of the screen shows the phone system display when the flip is closed; when the flip is open the screen switches to Palm operation. With the flip closed, phone operations are performed via the flip buttons and a side thumb wheel.
The Palm OS system benefits from the integrated cell phone by utilizing it as an attached modem. This allows the Palm to take advantage of any IP-based Palm applications, such as email clients and web browsers. The phone can also be used as an external modem for a computer via the HotSync cradle.
The QCP6035 won several awards at the time, including:
- CDMA Development Group's 3G Industry Achievement Award for Subscriber Technology, 2001
- MobileFocus Award in the mobile phone category at the PC Expo show, 2001
