I just watched part of the History Channel special - Star Trek: Secrets of the Universe, and there were some nice shots from the new movie.

From this (high-res) close up of the Bridge at the end of the movie, in comparison to the first movie, the window appears to be substantially taller. In consequence, the area above the bridge in the original 2009 construction pictures appears to have enough room for two decks. Now it looks like there is only room for maybe one deck.

My (personal) conclusion - ILM has shrunk the Enterprise size down by 15-20% at the end of the movie.
That bridge shot is from the middle of the film, not the end. And why would ILM scale the size down, it makes no sense? More likely the model from the 2009 teaser trailer is just out of date, understandably so.
