Who says Romulus will be destroyed in this reality? It was already a bit different to begin with,
Only in as much as giving Trek a much needed visual upgrade. In-universe, it's the same.
Chekov is older,
Born years after the timeline split, and easily explained anyway by saying Chekov Prime enountered a little relativitic time distortion (or any number of Trek time anomaly) that his alternate self didn't.
no George Kirk Jr. that we know of,
In a deleted scene and irrelevent anyway, since we saw 5 minutes of his childhood. We didn't see Butler, either.
Pike is older,
According to Commodore Mendez in "The Minagerie", Pike is "...about [Kirk's] age." (34)
Now, "The Cage" was 15 years earlier. And Spock served with Pike for 13 years. So Pike took command of the Enterprise somewhere between the ages of 7 and 19.
technology seems a little more advanced and similar to what it would be in the late 23rd century,
It's a movie made in 2009 not 1966. Thats why it looks "more advanced"
more aliens are in Starfleet at this time
We never saw any of Starfleet during TOS. Besides - aliens only crop up when budget allows.
- just 5 things I can think of off the top of my head that prove the NuTrek universe has some distinct differences.

That's at least 5 differences before Spock and Nero show up, and there's no way to conclusively say there aren't any more on either a minor or major level. Fortunately, Parallels implies either is possible.

By the same token, I could claim ANY continuity glitches are "proof" that episode X or movie Y exist in an alternate reality. The writers of the film say the timelines split in 2233 and novel writers back it up.
Star Trek Imponderables, fun mashups of Trek's biggest continuity errors! Ep1, Ep2 and Ep3
