Random device selection when selecting devices from a pool

Hi!

While selecting devices by DeviceInfo (MobileLab.lockDeviceByInfo(DeviceInfo deviceInfo)) we ran into an issue of MC only choosing one specific device for the tests everytime. My assumption is that when presented with several devices it chooses the first one alphabetically by device IDs. This may cause one of the devices to be overused while others being rarely used at all.

Would it make sense to add some randomness in this selection or is there a specific reason to make it alphabetically?
