A wallet IS a pocket. Are Portuguese wallets different from English wallets? I would assume they are essentially the same. I agree that the sentence is strange. I don't know any Americans who like to discuss the pockets of wallets, but I guess this would as good a time as any. My wallet has several additional pockets into which I stash my various cards. These pockets are very useful, if not altogether necessary. I could use a few more, but get along fairly well with the pockets I do have.
