| | From Storm 9530 to Torch 9850??

I have been very happy with my Storm. I've had it since Feb. 2009. I use the phone, Crunch SMS v3.6, Opera Mini v6.5, Google Maps with ease and certainty.
I use the native calendar/tasks/contacts which sync seamlessly with my Outlook 2010. I sync every morning using BBerry Desktop Manager v6.0. I realize that with the Torch, I might have to upgrade the Manager.
I've grown accustomed to the sometimes quirky touch keyboard and rarely make mistakes. I like the size of the screen. Sure I'd like it a bit bigger, but I think the Torch is big enough. The Droid, the Bionic and the Thunderbolt look like they would leave an impression on my waist --where the phone resides in its case most of the time.
My sons have all left BBerry for the Android world, but I can't see it for me. I have no Facebook or My Space accounts and don't want either. I never use my phone as a media player, but I do keep pictures on it --saves wear and tear on my wallet for sure. And I don't care about my phone talking back to me with answers to my questions. I want "MY Phone" not an "I-Phone". I DO care about my calendar. And apparently Google and Microsoft do not like each other. Even Deja Office is only moderately effective.
With a profile such as this am I crazy to want to stay with Blackberry? I'd appreciate any comments. I will have the chance to upgrade next month so I'm looking for comments.
