    \$\begingroup\$ Almost certainly an LED as Anindo says. BUT why is the photos not sharp so we can see it MUCH more clearly. Use more light. If necessary move further away into focus range. If necessary brace camera / phone on something solid. Almost any camera or phone-camera will do much better than this. Having enough light often makes an immense difference. \$\endgroup\$ – Russell McMahon Sep 10 '13 at 10:44

The component is a PLCC (Plastic Leadless Chip Carrier) type LED.

The one in the question seems to be a single color LED. A similar one, but RGB type:
