[* black] The display assembly weighs in at:
[* black] 153g for the LCD
[* black] 193g for the front glass
[* black] The glass seems quite thick (~1.18 mm), which is not a huge surprise considering the size of the iPad. Compare that to about 1.02 mm for the iPhone.
[* icon_note] The iPad would require thicker glass due to the increased "lever arm" caused by pressing down at the center of the screen. This is analogous to the difficulty of bending a short beam by its ends compared to the ease of bending a long beam.
