If you mean to put the icons on the tabs themselves, then read:

If you want the images as backgrounds in the main area, in the onCreate() for a tab, put:

TextView textview = new TextView(this);
Resources res = this.getResources();
Drawable myImage = res.getDrawable(R.drawable.myimage);
textview.setBackgroundDrawable(myImage);
setContentView(textview);

where your image "myimage" is put in the drawable resource folder.
