Taking forever to drill through porcelain tile. What gives?!?

I have the Roman Noce tiles commonly found at Lowes and am trying to drill some holes for a towel rack. I have one of those pointed carbide drill bits, but it seems to take FOREVER just to drill one hole (and I have 3 more to go).

Am I doing this wrong? Do I need a certain bit type? I am currently using this drill bit: http://www.lowes.com/lowes/lkn?action=productDetail&productId=280526-68081-82724&lpage=none

Please assist. Thanks!!

NO HAMMER DRILL!! And a cordless either.. I use a 3/8 drill and just a masonry bit.. The glaze ( unless you have a pure / true Porcelain) is the toughest to start.Once thru it should go fairly easy..A firm grip and pressure on the drill as you start is the best.. Watch for bit to run off of location as you already know..GL
