Yep I’m in the same boat as you JC! 🙂
I wonder if you have gone to a site where it detects your location and assumes that you are using the language for that country. I come across this problem now and then and end up with software or the site being in Chinese. Microsoft, Skype, Youtube and Hewlett Packard all have the same problem. Many of these sites aren’t that user friendly either when it comes to trying to change the language as well!
Is this site where you got the cab file from?
I just downloaded the Windows Mobile Binary file from here and it was in english
Also went here using Opera Mobile on the Touch Pro and got the binary file from here:
You should find both download links towards the bottom of the page. I installed both cabs and they were both in english. Hope this helps.
This Googlemaps version has street view now which is pretty cool. Alas street view is not available in Hong Kong 🙁 Street view still works if you go to an Australian or US address!
