Appearances can be deceiving. Both are multilanguage.

The rim8830c.sfi files are different.

8830uAMEA_PBr4.5.0_rel201_PL3.4.0.28_A4.5.0.135_Sp rint.exe - 8830 rim8830.sfi 16,940,000 bytes

8830mAMEA_PBr4.5.0_rel201_PL3.4.0.28_A4.5.0.135.ex e - 8830m rim8830.sfi 16,948,752 bytes

Note that the hardware IDs are different. From Vendor.xml -

<vendor id="0x68" Name="Sprint">
<bundle id="System" version="4.5.0.201">
<devicehwid>0x04000E04 0x06000E04</devicehwid>
</bundle>

The quick and dirty test is to extract the files via an administrative install and use CFP to get the fileinfo.

cfp fileinfo rim8830c.sfi (from the 8830m package) yields:

Clearly there is an 8830 hardware variant with its own OS build, and its now available for download.
