Nokia X5 Surprise Me feature lets you spin your phone to change the track

The Nokia X5-01 has a lot of features found in most phones these days but two interesting features grabbed our attention. Feature one dubbed Surprise Me lets you spin your phone on surface and it changes the track to a random one in your playlist. The second feature lets you know how many unread messages you have by just shaking the phone.  But when the music is playing shaking the phone picks the next track.

We managed to grab a video of how the tracks change when the phone was spun on a table !


Here is the official description of these features from the Nokia specsheet

  • Spin the phone when playing music to jump to a random track
  • Shake the phone to find out the number of unread messages
