The SI-08 is very similar to the iBase SI-18 unveiled in March 2011, except for the mother board, the operating  temprature (0 to 40 °C vs 0 to 45°C) and the obvious casing difference. I’m not very sure why they made this kind of casing.  One reason could be that the whole thing could be a heat-sink used to get rid of the fan inside the casing (which may be present inside the SI-18).

As usual with iBase, no information on the default (and supported) operating system(s) was provided. Further information can be found on iBase SI-08 page.
