So, what does Thom Hogan mean by phase detect here?

The D7100 very well may be the camera for you, especially with that 1.3x crop, which gives consumers a phase detect system that works across nearly the full captured frame.

He Means:

When you are not using the crop-function, your phase detection only Works at that part of the frame, which is covered by your 51 focus-points.

Working in cropmode, these 51 points fills the (cropped) frame.
