My poor Vox

I was one of those who bought a Vox right after it hit the market. Had a few glitches, but I learned to deal with them, and I used the Vox a LOT. Last summer DH won an iPad and promptly passed it on to me. I moved back and forth between Vox and iPad, but eventually I found myself using the iPad more and the Vox less because while I preferred the Vox's size, the iPad just worked better in every way.

I've been away from home for a few months and the Vox has been off for a period of months. Until today...and wow, is it Sluggish! I mean, beyond my being able to attritube it to my being more accustomed to the hardware of the iPad being up to what the software wants to do.

I uninstalled Lookout, thinking maybe it was bogging the whole thing down. It helped a wee bit, but not totally. I did unplug and reconnect the battery, which did correct the sleep of death thing. I've done some reading, which is ok, but I think running a browser is out of the question, it just freezes and crashes.

Has anyone else taken a Vox for a spin after an extended hibernation and found it to be slowwwwwww? I'm going to see if it perks up after I use it some more. If not, it may be time for a factory reset.
