i'm not convinced you're going to do too much damage - moving parts
would be the worst affected by sustained vibration

it wouldn't need much in the way of damping, say some foam padding
between the clamp and freerunner, to reduce any vibration to nearly

it would be very helpful of openmoko, to release any technical docs
for the mechanical side of the phone, i.e. the acceleration values
it's designed to, so we can make a more scientific assessment of what
sort of damping it needs
