Definition:

Android widgets are mini apps that run on your Android Home screen. Your phone comes with several by default, including a Home screen tips widget and a clock, but you can download more widgets from the Android Market.

Some phones, like the DROID X and DROID 2 also ship with custom widgets specific to the phone. DROID Motorola widgets are resizable.
