The first one linked is an ARM based machine which runs WinCE but seeing how the manufacturer probably realised quickly after launch that people were asking "Are you doing an Android or Chrome OS version?" They probably just said, Yeah, what the hell, why not.
The second machine has a VIA cpu and is 200 mhz faster than the first.
With a small amount of know how and a measured amount of effort, it should be relatively simple to update either of those machines to run the latest Android release.
Meego on the first device may be possible but I don't think that there is a VIA or ARM Fedora port, so Fedora running without some serious cross-compiling first is unlikely.
My personal view is that all of these low power devices, including the ipad are not worth serious consideration until the cpus make it to the 1.6 ghz mark, unless it also doubles as a phone and that is the device's primary function. When it happens, average gaming experiences will be possible.
Right now, the hardware just isn't quite good enough for your average kind of gaming experience IMO.
