In simple words, a device to which you can connect your smartphone through the inbuilt WiFi function. Right?
So, What is WiFi Hotspot in Android Smartphones?
Basically, when you enable this feature your smartphone becomes a device which can share it Internet. So, the other devices can connect to it to browse the internet.

In most smartphones whether it is android or not, this feature is built in. So, if you have an iPhone or a Blackberry smartphone you can still use it as a WiFi hotspot.
