Rogers lowers pricing for the LG Optimus Pad

We're guessing someone at Rogers corporate offices woke up from their money-filled dreams and realized that if you want to sell tablets, they need to be somewhat reasonably priced if you're also going to be taking on a new 3-year contract as well as handing over $300 or more in cold, hard cash.

With this realization came a price drop for the LG Optimus Pad which was previously set at $449 and is now sitting at $254 with a 3-year contract while the outright cost, no-contract drops to $549 from $699. Still pretty hefty but hey, it's still less then a Motorola Xoom. That has to count for something, right?
