You cannot use the Nokia/Ovi backup file on anything but Nokia phones, and even then only on compatible models.

You will need to either sync your N81 with MS Outlook and then sync the BlackBerry to Outlook to effect the transfer of info, or set up Google sync on both devices and use the Google cloud to transfer your data.

Another thought occurred to me. BlackBerry Desktop Manager *sometimes* can transfer data from a non-BlackBerry device to a new BlackBerry. It's a long shot but it's worth a try.
