Current 3G and 4G mobile technologies are beginning to offer ubiquitous access to the internet, thereby changing our lifestyles. They have become popular among digital natives and penetrated every aspect of their daily lives. 3G mobile technologies have functions equivalent to a computer system and can be extended to support a learning environment. Although the prices of smart phones in Malaysia are continuously increasing, many Smartphone features support a learning environment. However, digital natives remain skeptical on the use of these technologies in an educational environment. Clearly, there is still a lack of understanding on the factors affecting the adoption of mobile technologies in a learning environment. Based on a literature review, this study developed an integrated model to predict the factors that influence behavioral intention to adopt mobile technology in a learning environment
