BlackBerry will formally unveil the BlackBerry Classic at a New York City event tomorrow. Unlike most announcements, BlackBerry confirmed the BlackBerry Classic (as the Q20) back at MWC 2014 and recently began to take pre-orders, a number of carriers have also announced plans to carry the upcoming smartphone. Another today confirmed that it will also offer it. On the day that it’s celebrating its fifth birthday, WIND Mobile announced it will launch it next month:

Full BlackBerry Classic specifications will be revealed at tomorrow’s event but BlackBerry has been touting the return of the iconic BlackBerry button belt with ‘Menu,’ ‘Back,’ ‘Send’ and ‘End’ buttons and trackpad since it first talked about the device.
For those not in New York City tomorrow, the BlackBerry Classic event will be livestreamed.
