The Blackberry browser can call a phone number that appears in a web applications, or email an email address that appears in a web app.  Some have even accessed blackberry maps via a address in a web app.  However, the low level device APIs are not currently accessible. 

 

See this post for more info on how that may change in an upcoming version:
