BlackBerry is set to launch the Classic later today, with events scheduled at New York City, Frankfurt, and Singapore. After the launch of the handset, the Canadian manufacturer will visit the Nasdaq MarketSite in Times Square to ring the stock market closing bell.

James Yersh, BlackBerry's Chief Financial Officer, will ring the closing bell. The event will take place at the Nasdaq MarketSite, located at 4 Times Square - 43rd & Broadway Broadcast Studio on Wednesday, December 17, 2014 at 3:45 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. EST. BlackBerry is set to report its quarterly earnings on the 19th of December, so it is likely that the manufacturer is deciding to ring the bell to signify a possible change in fortunes.

We'll be at the Classic's launch event, so be sure to stay locked to CrackBerry for the rest of the day.
