Thanks for asking that, as that's exactly what I was wondering too. In the video, it looks like the hinge opens to almost 180 degrees, so if I was holding the phone in my right hand when making a call, it would just mean that the keyboard would stick out another few inches in front of me. Other than perhaps obscuring my vision a little, I can't understand why this would be a big deal for the occasional phone call?

@Luke - is there any reason that you said "You can obviously still make/ take calls on loudspeaker", as that sort of implies that what me and @citrons have described would for some reason be impossible? Could we have some official confirmation that the phone speaker and mic are still functional when the keyboard is attached please?
