Soldering a 48 pin LQFP and having it be fake is nothing short of a bad 
experience.  Like Scott, I recently purchased a fair quantity of 
CM119A's from a top CM distributor.  They told us the CM119 and CM119A 
are now legacy products and the CM119B is current. Unfortunately, the B 
model doesn't use a crystal and several developers agree that they may 
not be suitable for digital and analog radio adapter applications.  
There were still a few hundred CM119A's in the distribution chain as of 
a few months ago.
