I am going to assume from your post you are using the Eclipse Plug-in correct?
A web project is simply creating a website that you will view in the BlackBerry Browser. A BlackBerry Widget is an installable application for a BlackBerry Smartphone that has access to many APIs that are not available in a standard web browser.
For the most programmatic control, and access to virtually any API you are interested in, a BlackBerry widget is a much more powerful and flexible option.
