My iPad 2 (32gb) is about one year old and he is getting very slow. I've tried restarting the iPad and quitting all apps but with no real success.
There is about 5 GB of free storage space.

Any other ideas on how to speed things up?

What do you mean by "slow"? Do you notice a big difference between now and a few weeks earlier? –  Michiel May 8 '12 at 8:04
    
I'll give one example of "slow"/"sluggish": when I open safari it sometimes takes ~10sec to "load". I.e., until you see the open pages and the search bar is active. To answer your second question: yes, I think this sluggishness started in the last few weeks. –  Guy May 8 '12 at 8:37
    
What did you do the last few weeks? Installed something? Perform a jailbreak? Is it only Safari? Or other apps too? –  Michiel May 8 '12 at 8:42
    
no jailbreak. I installed a few apps here and there. I think it's mostly safari but also other apps (you can really see it on the Twitter and Facebook apps). –  Guy May 8 '12 at 9:17

Have your tried backing it up to your computer, then restoring it? That might help. Make sure it's backed up.
