Actually matte finish glass as used in better picture frames is no thicker
or heavier than its polished glass equivalent. Also, matte finished glass
actually shows finger prints less and as for glare and detail, it is
superior in both accounts, that's why they use it in picture frames. As a
matter of fact its only downside is that it costs more to put the fine matte
finish on then it does to fire polish regular glass.

A matte finish on a touchscreen you're supposed to use with your fingers
would blur the display substantially.  The finish would have to be similar
to the finish on the glass trackpads in the unibody laptops.  With the
distance between the finish and the display itself, you would get blur and
halos which would make the display look terrible.  It would also necessitate
the glass being slightly thicker and therefore heavier.
