The new user interface enhancements allows the HTC Scribe digital pen to be used with all applications on HTC EVO View 4G and enable it to act like a stylus for navigation. To get the update now, users must manually download it, but Sprint will push the upgrade to users in 2012. Here are the details:

From the Home screen, press the Menu key and tap Settings Scroll down and tap System updates Tap HTC software update Tap Check now Tap OK to download and install the update. You will not be able to use your device during the update. Once the download is complete, your tablet may power off and back on to complete the software update.

The upgrade will also be available in 2012 through an over-the-air update from Sprint. The notification will let users know the update is available and provide the simple over-the-air download instructions.
Due to the unique structure of the Honeycomb layout, customers' personalized widgets and screen setup will not remain after the upgrade. The device will revert to the out of the box home screen layout. Wallpapers, Widgets, Application shortcuts personalized by the user have been resized for optimal viewing and will need to be re-established. Some third-party apps may not work with Honeycomb, a tablet specific operating system. We recommend users remove the application, and check Android Market to see if an updated application is available, or contact the application provider.
