(too late to edit my last post above, so ...)

Come to think of it, chord typing could be pretty comfortable using touch sensors rather than buttons and 2-handed operation instead of one hand. Use your four fingers in the rear for ASDF + G on one side, and thumb up/down on the front to select a different row, or move to top left/top right for numbers/punctuation. Use pressure-sensitivity rather than taps to "squeeze out" the chorded key. Same thing for H + JKL; on the other hand, and two thumb squeezes together for space. It might take a little bit of getting used to for someone used to touch typing (since thumb is moved instead of fingers going up/down (in/out, relative to the edge of the screen), but it might be sufficiently similar to be able to transfer your muscle memory over.
