French company eviGroup have begun selling their Android-based Wallet MID, with prices for the 5-inch touchscreen device kicking off at €199 ($246). The Wallet has an 800 x 480 resistive touchscreen, WiFi a/b/g/n, 1GB of flash storage and a microSD card slot; it runs Android 1.5 on a Samsung ARM 6410 533/667MHz processor.

Battery life from the 2,000mAh pack is estimated at up to 6hrs continuous use or 24hrs standby; that’s less than an iPad, of course, which has quietly become the “standard” in companion device expectations, but then again the Wallet is – at 132 x 87 x 14 mm – considerably smaller. It still fits in a miniUSB and 3.5mm headset port, and includes an integrated microphone and speaker.
eviGroup are bundling the Wallet with a car mount and charger, as well as headphones and a USB to miniUSB cable. The basic matte finish model with a soft-touch back is €199, while the chrome finish version is €219 ($271). We’re expecting a review unit soon, so check back for full coverage.
