You are confusing resolution and perceived sharpness: those are two different things.

A picture may have very high resolution and seem soft: for example, a raw, unsharpened image from a pro dslr (like Canon 1DS MKIII) seems really soft, but resolution is very high.
On the other hand, you can have a 2 megapixels, very sharp image.

Downsizing reduces image resolution, of course, but increases perceived sharpness. The original image probably has better resolution, but will seem less sharp on screen.
