I want to buy a digital camera, so anyone could tell me some positive and negative sides for Pentax Optio S6, and Nikon Coolpix S1.

Thank you

Definitely avoid Pentax digicams - at all costs.

If you go to the Pentax Section here, you will find many, many horror stories from unhappy owners of Pentax P&S cameras. The Optio Series are very bad, as I have found out the hard way.

Nikon is a great brand, and you might want to have a look at their P series cameras. P1 has great image quality, but the WiFi is reportedly dodgey though. If you are interested in the S1, also have a look at the S3, because it is a more updated and better model.

If you check Steve's reviews, he has written great articles on the cameras you mentioned.
