We’re live in New York City for the launch of the BlackBerry Classic. The launch event event is being held right in front of the Wall Street bull.

We’re expecting keynotes from BlackBerry’s CEO, John Chen, and the Classic’s product team managers.

Following the Classic’s launch event we will likely have a media Q&A. Later in the day, BlackBerry will sound the closing bell at Nasdaq to ring in the Classic’s launch.

Follow along in our live blog below and engage in discussion in the chat.
