Default Why the small size???

I just recently received a nikon d100 with six pixels. Before this camera I had a sony f707. My question is this: when I shot pics with the sony at its max. resolution and brought these photos into photshop the image size would exceed 28"X 17". Now when I shoot pics with the digial Nikon at maximum resolution (i tried raw, nef, and tiffs) the image size comes out to around 6"X8". It is interesting to note that these small image sizes are about 18 mb's in size. Whats happening here? Shouldn't these photos be huge and if I bump up the size of the image am I ruining the clarity of the shot?
Thanks for your time in response

Your sony pictures were brought in to photoshop ant 72 dpi. The D100's were brought in at 300 dpi. Go to Image than image size and you will see what I mean.
