Assuming you would be using a headset, you can talk on the phone and access calendar and contacts quite easily. You'll need to hold the alt and back arrow key together to give you an application list and then the track ball to roll to the one you wish to use. However this method will only work if the device is unlocked. So, if you have taken a call while the device is locked, you won't have access to the other applications during the call.
