Default Sport accessories for Pearl/8120?

Please Login to Remove!


With the move to a stronger media-based device, I'm wondering if any of you folks have found (or are using) a sports-like holster/armband for the Pearl series. I'd like to start using my BB at the gym but hate the idea of carrying it in my sweaty hands.

Any suggestions? I can't find anything in the interweb.

On Amazon, I found an armband from a company called Tunebelt, its model "AB3". Nice and secure with my 8130, the top of the phone just slightly shows outside the pocket.

I was looking for a minimal design, and this fit the bill. Its not the most convenient since you have to remove your berry to change/browse music, but it is much more secure than some other styles that simply attach an armband to a rubber skin. I usually set the player on "random" or set up a playlist, and don't touch it while I work out or run.

Alternatively, body glove makes some universal styles that work, or you can look for an ipod case, I think the ipod mini is close to the same size.
