Now all the flash suppliers need to update their anobit technology by going to Apple. Apple has great leverage against competitors ( any product with SSDs) now.

You mean Anobit chips cam help break the dependency on flash suppliers?

Apparently Sandisk did supply for Ipod Nano, but possibly not a big enough supplier for Apple tablets or phones. With Anobit controllers, Apple does not need to depend on Samsung or Sandisk or Toshiba only for flash supply.

Apple gets its flash from Samsung and Toshiba. Sandisk not doing business directly with Apple.

You'd think so, right? But apparently consumer demand is fickle. And Apple bought Anobit in order to keep its Flash in-house. So Sandisk has to compete with everyone else to get "the best of the rest..."

Is SanDisk only in the memory card and SSD business? Seems like selling flash chips to tablet OEMs would be in a good growth engine right now.
