I would like to see what NAND (Toshiba or Smasung) drive is inside my iPad 2 and iPad 3.

There is no 'drive' per say... it would just be a flash memory BGA chip soldered onto a PCB.

No, SystemInfo, gives some details, but not component manufacturers.

There might be something in jailbreak world, but more likely, you'll have to disassemble.

Why does it matter?

I've been told that Samsung SLC/OneNAND is better and last longer than Toshiba MLC/NAND.

It's not likely Apple would switch between different tech such as SLC vs. MLC when setting up multiple sources. I would just look through ifixit and see what they found in teardown.
