I wish I could try Azure, but you need a valid credit license to even developer a test application on it. It's a catch 22.

Just as a correction, the image says "Consumer Preview" for Windows 8, but the link does take you to the "release preview"

I wanted to develop using their mobile SDK too, but I read the agreement and it says only 30 days trial. How much for a license?

The mobile SDK is free to use. What you are thinking of is becoming is an AppHub member, this gives you publishing rights to the app hub, and other resources to integrate advertising solutions into your app. Stuff like that.

If thats what you are looking for, its $99/year, unless your a dreamspark student, then its $0. If you don't know what dreamspark is, you can go herefor more info.
