I recently found the following post on stackoverflow here, simply add the following code (sorry, no xml version)

tabHost.getTabWidget().getChildAt(0).getLayoutParams().height = 25;

If you have your tabs positioned at the bottom of the screen, make sure you give android:gravity=”bottom” to your layout
