We've already had some vague details about the LG Mini (GD880), and spotted it at CES, but now LG has laid more specs on the line for its diminutive smartphone.

Packing the new LG Phantom browser, it'll be the first HTML 5-compatible phone on the market, while still keeping Flash onside as well for strong online video playback.

LG says HTML 5 compatibility will make mobile web browsing faster, and an expanded memory means you'll be able to multitask with up to 10 browser windows open at once.

You'll reportedly be able to access Google services such as Latitude, Gmail, Maps and Buzz at the same speed as you would on your desktop PC.

The GD880 will also be the first phone to pack LG's Air Sync, a 3-way cloud network that keeps your phone data linked to your PC, which we first spied at CES. We particularly liked the History Sync, which allowed you to view your last 100 websites visited on your PC, on your phone.

The rest of the spec list reads pretty standardly – a 3.2-inch touchscreen, a 5 megapixel camera, Wi-Fi and 3G, A-GPS and push email as well.

The LG Mini will be available this month, with pricing to be confirmed. Let us know what you think to it below and check out our top 10 smartphones for a peek at its competition.
