Touching the Qur'an Text on Ipad's etc. without Wudhu

Q: Ipad's and other tablets now come with the complete Qur'an installed in them. Is it permissible to touch it without wudhu when the Qur'an application is opened.

A: It is permissible to touch it without wudhu. However, it is better that one out of respect, does not touch that part of the screen where the actual aayah is displayed.
