About HTC Scribe

Whether for work or play, we've made something so common yet useful as a pen seamlessly fit your mobile experience. On HTC Jetstream, use the HTC Scribe™ pen to take notes, draw pictures, sign contracts, and more.
Note: The tablet pen is sold separately. Contact AT&T or your local retail store for details on purchasing the pen.

2 ERASER button Lets you erase your pen strokes on the current screen.
3 HIGHLIGHTER button Lets you highlight text in pen-integrated apps.
4 Pen nib This is replaceable, if it cracks or wears out.

Inserting a battery into the tablet pen

Before you start using the tablet pen, you need to first install the disposable AAAA battery that's included in the box. After a period of time, change the tablet pen's battery when you feel that HTC Jetstream is not responding too well to your pen strokes.
  1. Twist the battery cap counter-clockwise until it detaches from the tablet pen, then remove it completely.
  2. With the positive pole first, insert a new battery into the tablet pen.
  3. Put the battery cap back into the tablet pen, and then twist it clockwise until it locks in place.

What your tablet pen can do

You can use the tablet pen for writing, drawing, highlighting, and other things that a regular pen can do on a piece of paper. You can also use the tablet pen to move around HTC Jetstream like when you want to slide to another screen, scroll through a web page, or select onscreen items.

When you tap with the tablet pen, you'll see the Pen options palette, where you can choose from a variety of pen types, strokes, and colors. Here are some of the pens and strokes you can use:

1 Pencil
2 Crayon
3 Ballpoint pen
4 Paintbrush
5 Calligraphy pen
6 Marker
7 Highlighter
8 Eraser

What should I do if the pen nib gets damaged?

If the nib or tip of your tablet pen cracks or wears out, you must replace the pen nib to avoid scratching the touch screen. Contact AT&T or your local retail store on how to purchase and replace the pen nib.
