The application of E-government through the use of mobile devices is a challenge for all the countries. Although developing countries are slow in adopting the new technologies, most of their habitants are already familiar with the use of mobile devices. Despite that, the implementation of m-government is still a problem. Few scholars have researched the adoption of m-government by the developing countries and the influential factors that affect this adoption. The current research explores the influential factors of the m-government adoption by improving the Unified theory of acceptance and use of technology model. The improved UTAUT model derives from the additional elements of trust, context of use and human development index. The improved UTAUT contributes in the current m-government research by building a conceptual model that will be useful for scholars and policy makers so as to detect the potentiality of the developing countries to adopt m-government.
