    Its a freaking widget and icon. Just like Android OS widgets for apps like Pandora. You'll get an icon for an app launcher, you can pin that to your home screen, and you can also add a Pandora widget to your home screen. It'd be pretty redundant to put both an icon and widget on the home screen for the same app. That is why in WP, if you pin your app to the home screen you'll get an ICON like title, or a WIDGET like tile depending on the app developer implementation of the available api. So yeah Jax, call it what you want but you'll look pretty stupid calling it anything other than TILES. Mainly, you cant call it a widget if it doesn't update anything, and you cant call it an icon if its updating info.
