    My 4g iPod Touch is the same; sometimes it'll take almost 2 minutes to load, and even after that it lags quite a bit. I've had it for 2 years now, so I'm guessing its just a bit old. Perhaps your iPad may be getting old, so take that into account. Also, if you have any apps running in the multi-tasking bar it could slow down the iPad when loading, so try to kill the apps after using them. I've noticed also that a pass-code slows down a device quite a bit (although it is not always the case) but it's worth a try to disable your pass-code.

    Hope this helps. :)

    What are you loading on iPod touch 4 that's taking so long? I have one on iOS 6.0.1 that's loading fine. Could it be a wifi prob in your case?

    For the first 2 posters, have you tried to 'Reset' your iPads? Directions HERE - go to the 'Reset' section - let us know if this helps (or not) - good luck! :)

    It's not the wi-fi that causes it to be slow because I always turn it off when I'm not using it. I do run the latest software and its a 32gb model; more than enough for me so it's not really having to check its cache over and over rendering it slow. It's just quite old I guess. :)
