    it's pictured holding a curve 83xx so i would say yes, considering they are about the same height.

    I bought this from Amazon:

    amazon.co.uk/Duragadget-Waterproof-holder-Blackberry-storm2/dp/B003UAJ3I2/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&s=electronics&qid=1282341323&sr =8-2

    The zip is rather stiff, but it's waterproof, only 15/$25, fits any device, and it will protect your BB if the case happens to come off.

    Incidentally, I've found the "Leave it On" app from appworld is great for disabling the backlight timeout. Only $4.

    Bike Route Toaster is also the way forward for creating routes. Can then save them and load them into Google Maps, add them as a layer on Google Maps on your Blackberry, and you have a pretty decent GPS navigation tool.

    I found this one is best. Arkon Bicycle Handlebar Mount for the BlackBerry Curve, BlackBerry Tour, and BlackBerry Bold 9700 (BB227) I use it with BBSpeedOMeter. I also use this Gadget Zipline Home so there is no chance by BB will hit the ground.

    It also, by coincidence, accepts my TomTom XL.
