At the CeBIT 2000, Gmate introduced the YDK1000, the Yopy Development Kit. Without a physical keyboard this device looked very different to later versions. It came with an embedded Linux operating system and the W Window System. Later also precompiled versions of the X Window System and the IceWM window manager became available.
The first official model in the Yopy line of PDAs was the YP3000. It introduced the clam shell design with a full-Qwerty keyboard, and featured a 3.5 inch TFT screen. It also came with the X Window System and IceWM.
One of the features of the YP3500 is a CDMA module, so it can be used as a mobile phone. In 2003, WiFi was widely used in Korea, and so the YP3700 targeted this environment with an additional WiFi module.
