CNBC to Premiere “Planet of the Apps” Special on January 7th

If you ever wondered just how much of an impact the iPhone may have had on the world around it, CNBC might have the answer. The network will apparently be airing a special called “Planet of the Apps: A Handheld Revolution!” that looks at how the release of the iPhone gave birth to a revolution in mobile technology.

The show will feature a piece from “Heroes” actor Greg Grunberg, who describes his “second job” as an app developer (he helped write the Yowza! Mobile Coupons [App Store, free] application), look at the popularity and profitability of apps, interview app developers and examine how big a business apps truly are.

“Planet of the Apps: A Handheld Revolution!” will
premiere on Thursday, January 7th at 10 PM, and repeats at 1 AM.
