Yes, it's designed for breadboard use. The '328 is permanently soldered to the PCB... It's the square 32-pin chip next to the USB connector. Two of the additional pins are analog... Note A0-7 on the nano vs. A0-5 on a standard board.
The Nano is nice, but the Teensy is more cost effective. I guess the functional difference between the two is that Nano is officially an Arduino board with all associated hardware, while the Teensy uses a non-official chip (though still an ATMEGA) with built-in USB support.
[edit]bleh... spent too much time looking at hardware [/edit]
