It's 16 threads per App. Take a look at this article:

Re: Threads

The document is not correct. I tested with Storm 9550 simulator and the maxium number of thread is 21 (rather than 16 as claimed by RIM).

Re: Threads

I did a test with 70 threads on the simulator, it worked there but it doesn't mean it will work on a real device.
