The purpose of this study is to investigate the relationship between product attributes of smart device and user acceptance of technology. Moreover, the authors examined mediating effect of utilitarian and hedonic motivation between product attributes and user acceptance. Previous researches focused on user attitude and behavior intention of new technology based on Technology Acceptance Model(TAM). However, differently from previous researches, which are focused on user attitude like perceived usefulness and perceived ease of use, this research emphasized the relationship product attributes such as product functionality, design, and convenience and user motivation both utilitarian(effort expectancy and performance expectancy) and hedonic motivation(perceived enjoyment) according to UTAUT model. The results shows that 3 motivation variables(effort expectancy, performance expectancy, and perceived enjoyment) have positive impacts on user acceptance intention of smart device. product design has positive relationship to perceived enjoyment and product convenience has positive relationship to both effort and performance expectancy. Furthermore, 3 motivation variables play a full mediation between product attributes and user acceptance intention of new technology. However, product functionality has no relationship to both effort and performance expectancy. Research contribution, implications, and further research directions are discussed at the end of the paper.
