help understanding digital camera specs

I use to have this CASIO digital camera:

which has a 1/1.75 CCD.
Recently, Casio introduced a new camera:

which they say has a newly developed 1/2.3 CCD (same number of megapizels). I dont understand this! Surely 1/2.3 is a SMALLER CCD and therefore not as good as the older one?

Hmm, camera or not 2.3 is rather bigger than 1.75 !!

1/2.3 is a Ratio is it not. so 1/1.75 is smaller

eg 1 to 2.3......1 to 1.75

Natdoors article shows that the bigger sensor is the older one.

So it looks like the new one is not as good -
