Make a phone call

From a webworks (HTML5) app, using the BB10 platform, I would like a to call a phone number. Googling yielded these: https://developer.blackberry.com/html5/api/blackberry.phone.Phone.Call.html https://developer.blackberry.com/html5/api/blackberry.invoke.PhoneArguments.html They weren't very helpful, as they are essentially blank. (they appear to be stub articles). How would one do this?

Re: Make a phone call

Alternatively, you could also leverage the invocation framework:

Though that would be BB10 specific as opposed to Bryan's HTML5 cross-platform approach.
