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.

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.

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.
