Ultra slow ipod touch?

I bought an ipod touch from the US in March.

It has been working really great, but lately it has become really sluggish in accessing applications.

Basically, I press on the icon and have to wait 5-10 seconds for it to initialise. Even when I am in the actual application, navigating si very slow.

This is even more prevalent on the YouTube application. Essentially I can't watch clips any more, as it takes forever to start YouTube and then ages to load a particular clip..

My memory is 50% full (mainly music and photos).

Any hints on how to speed up the operation?

Have you just upgraded to v2.1 firmware?

I have and am sure my touch is slower now than before.

Just a thought.
