ESX4 and ESXi4 is the platform for running a VM box.  Think of it as the OS that hosts the VM's

VSphere is the application that runs on a windows platform that will remotely manage the ESX and VM's

Yes; VMware just changed the name when they made version 4.x. It's still referred to as 4.x, but if you hear someone say "I have vSphere", they mean they have 4.x as their infrastructure. You can say "I have ESX 4.x" and it still be correct terminology. :)

SO vsphere can mean VI Client(vsphere client) or Virtual Center (Vsphere virtual center)?

vSphere is a "version". So yes...vSphere Client is the new name for the old VI Client; and virtual center is now vCenter (not vSphere Center; that is the only 'odd' name).

Starting from version 4 of ESX vmware decided to take the vcenter together with version of ESX release, so before they use to say ESX3.0 and Virtual Center 2.0 but starting from 4 which VMWare call as Major release of their innovations by name vSphere Suit which they call vCenter,vSphere Client,ESX/ESXi and some other Applications all together as vSphere product line. vSphere is product name nothing special when it comes to ESX 4 (or) vSphere 4.
