Thanks for that. It does indeed sound more capable than the Flik. So
the hardware controls are two buttons and a rotating bezel?

yes, as you know the flic is just a button that you can setup to do
different things according to how many times you press the button in
the O6 is a complete controller for your Iphone and soon android devices.
virtually any thing you can do on the Iphone using your fingers, ie swipes,
tapping, using the home button, adjusting volume, taking photos,
playing music skipping tracks forwards and backwards, navigating by
letter, word, and all the other varients of navigation are all
pre-programmed into the O6.
different twists of the bezel and presses of the buttons change how the
so for example in advanced mode which is the best mode for navigating
and controlling the Iphone.
each click of the bezel as you turn it in either direction moves you by
one icon on the screen, a single click of the centre will activate that
icon, a rapid twist of the bezel about 90 degrees in less than one
second in either direction will send you to either the top left or
bottom right corner of the screen.
there are other combinations of twists to change screens in either
direction, you can tripple click the outer rubber button and then you
can use the bezel to adjust the volume, tripple clicking the same button
puts you back in advanced navigation mode again.
if you press and hold the centre button for 2 seconds it puts you in the
mode where you can make any changes to the roter settings and lets you
know it's in that mode by vibrating 3 times, press and hold the centre
button for 2 seconds again and it will vibrate twice to let you know you
are back in advanced navigation mode.
a single and double click of the outer button does the same as pressing
the home button on the Iphone, and a triple click of the centre button
shows or hides the on screen keyboard when an edit box is opened.
on top of all this it has it's own artificial intelligence built into
it's app that can examine messages tweets and such like as they arrive
firstly reading them to you and if there's more than one of them you can
quickly flick between them by twisting the bezel, and if the thing you
receive contains a question it will offer you quick responses by
pressing the centre button to respond possitively or the outer button
and if neither of what it offers as the quick response is suitable press
and hold the centre button to bring up other options including to call
the person or be guided to them.
this mode is called smart mode and automatically activates during phone calls
and when readingmessages and notifications thus the same button presses
that you use in advanced mode can do different things in this mode but
automatically revert to the normal advanced mode functionality when a
call is ended or you finish reading messages and notifications.
i'm sure there's things i have forgotten but i've only had it since
wednesday so am still familiarising myself with it.
