Cloud evaluation for a Socket Server Application (Amazon AWS vs Windows Azure vs Google AppEngine)

Recently I made a little research on clouds for an application which we are planning to develop. This one is a server application which need to listen for clients on a socket. We also need to send vedeo audio streams back and forth. Client application may run on Windows, android and iOS. So we decided to use raw sockets and custom streaming. Then we were trying decide which cloud to be used. Finally I decided on AWS ans use .Net and MySQL to build our server. Here is the comparison chart I created if it is helpful to anybody.
