I will work on an Internet radio application in which I will need to stream two or more streams simultaneously. I accomplished that in prior BB versions and in Android version. I'd like to know whether that is possible in BB10 devices. Do they have multiple audio channels?

This involves multiple sounds.
While the sounds are not "streaming" per se, this should get you started.

From my experience, BB10 plays multiple audio sources without any issues at all.

Playing multiple audio files is very simple. Basic way is to create multiple MediaPlayer objects and play them at the same time.
I would weigh up your options before doing this. I tried this initially - and it consumes a lot of resources (understandably, if you're adding more MediaPlayer objects). If you do it the C++ way (see the link I posted to a sample which has concurrent, simultaneous sounds, done with half a dozen lines of C++), then it's not as resource intensive.

One thing to note with the BBJAM class is that it does not play mp3s. Furthermore, you cannot have mp3s in your sound directory or it will fail as well (due to pre-caching).
